RE: [IB-Java] jca-jdbc driver without jboss


I am loading the FBDriver class is this just jdbc 1.0 - no blob support?   I get the following exception when I try to run it with win2K and using localhost as the server:

**** Exception possible com.alteon.nms.persist.PdException: InterBaseIf.dbQuery(
): SQL exception java.sql.SQLException: ResourceException: javax.resource.Resour
ceException: couldn't start local transaction: javax.transaction.xa.XAException
com.alteon.nms.persist.PdException: InterBaseIf.dbQuery(): SQL exception java.sq
l.SQLException: ResourceException: javax.resource.ResourceException: couldn't st
art local transaction: javax.transaction.xa.XAException

I am using the following connection URL
jdbc:firebirdsql:localhost/3050:/c:/Program Files/Alteon/PcdNms/PCDNMS.GDB

Thanks for all your help

Yes. Use the FBDriver class if you like jdbc 1 or FBWrappingDataSource if
you would like a datasource with pooling built in.  Consult the tests for
examples of how to use these.

If you want xa transactions you will have to supply a ConnectionManager
class to work with your transaction manager.  You might be able to adapt
one of the jboss ones.

The driver should actually work in any app server supporting jca, such as
some versions of weblogic and websphere, and Pramati server, however I
haven't tested it anywhere else.

If you really need xa, I suggest using an app server such as jboss.  You
can prune jboss to a small size and it will simplify many aspects of
